Avery comes to us from the shelter in Twin Falls where she was too shy and withdrawn to show well in the kennels. We are estimating her age at just under 1 year and she weighs about 32 pounds.

This is a very sweet pup. Avery is coming out of her shell at her foster home and is learning house manners. She is not yet housetrained, but we are working on it and she can be a bit of a counter surfer if tempting things are left out in the kitchen. Avery is now crate trained.

Avery loves people, is good with children 7 years and up, and likes other dogs. We have been told she is a little too intense to live with cats.

She loves to play with toys! Even all by herself.

Avery does get motion sick so we try not to feed her before going for a ride in the car. If you travel a lot this is something you will need to be aware of and work on with her. Giving her a Dramamine tablet an hour before travel seems to help.

This pup was a blank slate and pretty shut down when we got her. She would benefit from a home that will work with her to help her to continue to build confidence and give her some obedience training.

If you are interested in possibly adopting Avery, please complete the adoption application on this website and then email Joan at *** If you are having trouble with the application on this website, please go to the application located here: ***
